The present document was released to provide the shipping industry with the professional recommendations relating to the arrangement and strength of the manifolds installed on the modern gas carriers, together with the associated fittings. The recommendations contained in this volume have been developed for both LPG and LNG, i.e. liquefied petroleum and natural gases, respectively.

There are seven chapters in this volume, starting with the introduction to the scope of the document and size categories, and followed by the positioning on the manifolds on both types of carriers. The protection from the spillage of cargo has been paid particular attention, including requirements to the height of the coaming, drainage, water curtain etc.

Then there are two chapters dealing with the design, specification and fittings of the manifolds, where you will have information about the carbon and stainless steel manifolds, distance pieces and flanges, spool pieces, reducers etc. you will need to be aware of the additional requirements and you can find them in the sixth chapter, while the closing one is devoted to the bunkering manifolds. There is also a good glossary provided for those not too familiar with the terminology used.
